Yes, we know this has already been out for almost a week! And yes, many of y’all probably thought we’d forgotten or, worse, not even noticed. Well sorry for the delay, we were just too absorbed in the amazingness of the whole project. Because Loreen’s “Paper Light (Higher)” is quite simply magnificent.

Loreen “Paper Light (Higher)” Audio

It’s nearly two years since her last release, but it was worth the wait. Combining luscious strings and piano riffs with pulsating house beats, this sounds retro and completely new all at once. Just like “Euphoria” it stirs simultaneous emotions of melancholy and ecstasy, and demands multiple replays. Unsurprisingly, it’s already amassed over half a million Spotify streams. Still no word on an official video, but judging from Saturday’s Melfest performance, we should expect something ground-breaking.

“Paper Light (Higher)” Live at Andra Chansen, Melodifestivalen 2015

Andra Chansen viewers witnessed the homecoming of the Queen! Dressed in nothing but trousers, red gloves and a little strategically placed duct tape, she challenged the music-world’s gender stereotypes – it was no coincidence that this all took place on the eve of International Women’s Day. And surely the inclusion of the flamboyant Ukrainian dance act Kazaky was for more than purely entertainment purposes. We wonder if Putin was watching? While the likes of Conchita Wurst and Alexander Rybak peddle beige clones of their respective Eurovision hits, Loreen boldly steps ahead of the crowd. Constantly innovating, but never losing her original identity. Loreen – your warriors salute you!

Loreen “Paper Light (Higher)” Lyrics

I’m coming back to start
I’m counting back to the start
The sound of guns when we part
I’m in a race with this heart

Come under my skin
Rush through my face
I need your light
I’ve been chased
To a stormy place
Shooting up to the sky

We’re born to be higher
Lighter
We’re born to be higher
We’re paper light

You’re flashing bright in my eyes
You’re all I’ve done, all my life!
And things aren’t always what they seem
We’re kings and queens of my dreams

Come under my skin
Rush through my face
I need your light
I’ve been chased
To a stormy place
Shooting up to the sky

We’re born to be higher
Lighter
We’re born to be higher
We’re paper light
We’re born to be higher
Lighter
We’re born to be higher
We’re paper light in the sky

I do it for you,
You do it for me
I do it for you,
You do it for me
I do it for you,
You do it for me

We’re born to be higher
Lighter
We’re born to be higher
We’re paper light
We’re born to be higher
Lighter
We’re born to be higher
We’re paper light in the sky

At first i didn’t like it and it was big let down 4 me that my idol and our Queen of Vision Loreen released after so long time since 2013 a song like that as her first single of her upcoming 2nd album.. But now the song has grown on me and sounds interesting…It is artistic like… Ok i can understand though that Loreen can not release catchy pop radio friendly songs all the time… At least i hope that her album will contain many diamonds tracks & will be even better than her debut *Heal*.. Im so excited to… Read more »
